#1 : Using the six Aristotelian dimensions of ethos (safety or trustworthiness, expertise, sociability, composure, dynamism, and status) evaluate someone in public life. That person could be a politician, religious or business leader, celebrity, or other. Explain why you would give the person a good or bad score on each of the six dimensions. Your opinion can be based on something that the person said, or alternatively, something they did. Limit your responses to one sentence for each point. Be factual. Avoid derogatory or inappropriate comments.
#2: Read and comment on the ideas in the following article (next slide), which addresses the impact of why some visuals carry more emotional impact than others. Refer to elements in the previous photos that support these ideas.
#3: After reading the article in the next slide or watching the video (your choice), use the five components of Lasswell’s model to analyze this incident with Stockwell Day. This activity pertains to political contexts. [One sentence for each of the five components is sufficient.
#4 : Give an example some noise that has influenced your ability to listen to this lecture and/or to participate in this exercise. The noise can be internal to you (physiological or psychological) or external (something in the environment) or both. [Two or three sentences are sufficient in describing the source(s) of noise.
#5 : Give an example of a friend, work colleague, family member, or other (1) with whom you are able to communicate more easily because of a large shared field of experience or (2) with more difficulty because of small shared field of experience. [Explain in several sentences.] If you are citing a difficult experience, use a fictitious name or relationship. Although your name will not be attached to the comments, others will be able to read all class comments. We also learn from each other in this course.
#6 : Give an example of some past experience in your life (positive or negative) that influenced a later interaction with someone. The later interaction might be the same person or it might be a different person. Your example will illustrate Dance’s idea of the “additive” or “cumulative” effects of communication. Tie your comments to specific characteristics of the Dance model. [Limit your comments to a short paragraph.
